Jamie McMurray is an American former professional stock car racing driver working for FOX Sports serving as a NASCAR analyst for NASCAR RACE HUB. He joined FOX Sports in 2019.
Jamie McMurray Career
McMurray serves as NASCAR analyst for NASCAR RACE HUB, the sport’s most-watched daily show, and NASCAR RACEDAY, among other duties. In 2020, he expanded his role significantly, becoming an analyst for all of FOX NASCAR’s pre-and in-race studio coverage of the NASCAR CUP SERIES and NASCAR XFINITY SERIES, as well as calling multiple NASCAR XFINITY SERIES and NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES races from the broadcast booth. He’ll be back in the same role in 2021.
McMurray, who spent the majority of his racing career in the No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet, transitioned from the racetrack to FOX NASCAR’s virtual studio in Charlotte, N.C., following a couple of guest analyst appearances on NASCAR RACE HUB in 2018. In addition, he provided commentary in the FOX Sports broadcast booth for NASCAR XFINITY SERIES races at Pocono Raceway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway. McMurray burst onto the NASCAR scene in 2002, winning in his second Cup Series start, the quickest Cup Series win ever while filling in for the injured Sterling Marlin at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Former world karting champion worked his way up through the NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES and NASCAR XFINITY SERIES ranks before signing with Chip Ganassi Racing in 2003, where he won Rookie of the Year. McMurray returned to Ganassi in 2010 after a stint at Roush Fenway Racing from 2006 to 2009. He became one of only three drivers to win both the DAYTONA 500 and the BRICKYARD 400 in the same year.
McMurray also won the 2014 NASCAR All-Star Race and the 2015 Rolex 24 at Daytona with GCR teammates Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, and Kyle Larson during his second stint at Chip Ganassi Racing. McMurray became one of only four drivers in history to win both the Daytona 500 and the Rolex 24, joining racing legends A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, and FOX NASCAR analyst Jeff Gordon as the only others to accomplish the feat.
McMurray also qualified for the NASCAR CUP SERIES playoffs three years in a row, from 2015 to 2017. McMurray’s Cup Series career included seven wins, 11 pole positions, 63 top-five and 168 top-10 finishes, as well as eight NASCAR XFINITY SERIES victories and a NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES victory. McMurray devotes his free time to fitness and nutrition, as well as competing in grueling running and cycling endurance events. He ran his first marathon in December 2017, finishing in 3:25:14, and he improved on that time the following year, finishing in 3:14:06. The Jamie McMurray Foundation, his charity, has given more than $225,000 to Autism Speaks and other children’s charities.
